NEW ORLEANS – The Iowa State men’s cross country team made its season debut at No. 24 today in the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association national poll. The Cyclone women moved up to No. 7 in the rankings, marking the second consecutive week that the women have bettered their previous ranking.

Iowa State is one of 11 programs nationally to have both the men’s and women’s teams ranked in the top-25.

The Iowa State women, previously ranked No. 8 nationally, jumped Butler to reach the No. 7 slot after a dominating performance at the Big 12 Championships. The Cyclones won by an impressive 69 points, the second-largest margin of victory in Big 12 Championship history (73 – Colorado, 2002).

Each Cyclone scoring runner placed in the top-15. Crystal Nelson (2nd), Katy Moen (4th), Bethanie Brown (5th), Perez Rotich (9th) and Ejiro Okoro (15th) each earned All-Big 12 recognition. Brown also received Big 12 Newcomer of the Year award as the race’s top-finishing newcomer.
